ETC Group has been selected as a winner of Retro Rumble, a commercial and public building energy efficiency success competition by Energy Management Association (EMA) and ENERGY STAR. Participants were judged based on their overall changes in ENERGY STAR score and Site Energy Use Intensity (EUI).
ETC Group’s project with Banner Health‘s Heart Hospital in Mesa, Arizona received the following scores:
- Site EUI Change: 214 to 160
- ENERGY STAR Score Change: 71 to 97
Utility savings from efficiency measures at Banner Heart Hospital are over $198,000 per year. Improvements and changes ETC Group implemented resulted in a 16% reduction in total electric use and a 27% reduction in gas use.
Measures implemented include equipment scheduling, air handler resequencing, chiller plant optimization, and heating plant improvements.
